Our camera broke during our anniversary trip to the Smokies (nice........), so we ended the trip by stopping at Best Buy to find a replacement. Our new one takes better pictures, does video, and has a nice zoom. Now you get to see pictures of birds at our feeder!

Siobhan and Kristina walking through the meadow. Our highlight of the month was finally getting our nature trail finished. It is nearly 1/2 mile long if you walk the full loop, but it has little shortcut trails along the way if you can't walk that far. :)

This giant tree (the one with no leaves on it yet) has been on our list of projects--it is dying and could be a real threat to the house and shop. A few weeks later, a neighbor dropped in asking if we had a tree to cut! PTL! That tree is no more. :)
